Go-Ethereum (Geth), which is Ethereum’s most used software client, has just updated to version 1.8.20 and revealed that the Constantinople hard fork will happen at block number 7,080,000, which means it could go live sometime between Jan. 14 and Jan. 18, 2019.

Constantinople is a proposed upgrade that (if accepted by users) would bring enhancements to the network, streamlining the overall code and also reducing the reward per block from 3 ETH to 2 ETH.

ALT: ETH/USD chart

After testing the key mark at 100, ETH/USD couldn’t sustain higher prices above the bullish trend line and returned below it, trading mostly sideways, with a 0.30% drop for the last 24 hours. The two Exponential Moving Averages are still crossed bearish on a 4-hour chart, but they are beginning to flatten, in agreement with the sideways price action.

The candles are very small, and the RSI is drifting in the middle of its range, further showing that currently the market lacks momentum and doesn’t have a clear direction (albeit it’s obvious that we are in a downtrend from a longer-term perspective).

This type of movement can be considered the calm before the storm and is usually followed by a strong breakout, so although the next direction is hard to anticipate, expect a solid push once the pair breaks free of the range.

Support zone: 83

Resistance zone: 50 EMA and $100

Most likely scenario: tight, range-bound price action; increase in volatility when sideways movement ends

Alternate scenario: drop below 83

Bitcoin Cash Price Prediction: $300 in a Few Weeks? The BCH Rocket-Speed Rally Has Just Begun!

    Bitcoin Cash price prediction for March-April: BCH price charts and technical indicators give us positive signs. BCH is to reach $170 soon and break other resistance leve

Bitcoin Cash Price Prediction: $300 in a Few Weeks? The BCH Rocket-Speed Rally Has Just Begun!

Taking the lead of the race, Bitcoin Cash has outperformed other cryptocurrencies by growth rate and has recently rocketed to $157, surprising traders. Has it reached the roof? Not likely – tradingview users have a positive outlook at BCH perspectives and future price and share their opinions with us. Good news: BCH $300 value is possible again!

BCH to reach $300 in the coming weeks

BCH might reach $300 by April 10th

Bitcoin Cash price chart from BeefStew

Sounds fantastic, but we might see BCH reaching $300 in the coming weeks if BTC continues moving upward. If the channel is accurate, the previous downward trend line and the 200 EMA will intersect at $300 around April 10th. Isn’t it great?  It means investors might enjoy at least a 200% profit in a few weeks.

However, other BCH price predictions aren’t as optimistic as this one – other TradingView users are sure that BCH will face resistance soon.

$172 price before retrace

Bitcoin Cash might take a step back after reaching $172

Bitcoin Cash price chart from EuroMotif

Bitcoin Cash is still at the head of the rally, and it looks pretty strong right now, targeting the $172 level. However, according to EuroMotif, as soon as it reaches the $172 threshold, it will take a path of retracement. Yesterday, we could see Bitcoin Cash hitting resistance at 5.618, but it was able to surpass it.

Let’s hope it will be able to move forward after hitting $172, as well.

Uptrend to $170 is likely to continue

Uptrend to $170 is very likely to go on

Bitcoin Cash price chart from Goldgram

According to Goldgram, Bitcoin Cash’s StochRSI is moving close to the center. Thus, If the BCH/USD pair goes beyond the range, then a new trend will be created and the price could rally all the way up to $156 to $160.

Since the price has broken through the $140 range, the uptrend can extend to $170.

But what if BCH take a nosedive after its splendid soaring? Traders can uphold the stops on the long positions at $114. If the bears go under the pair below $120, it can decline to $104.

Goldgram points some resistance and support lines for the short term:

Resistance 3: $132.4006

Resistance 2: $130.4683

Resistance 1: $128.9942

Support 1: $125.5877

Support 2: $123.6554

Support 3: $122.1813

Expect a minor BCH plunge before recovery

BCH might fall for a week to give us a chance to enter the market

Bitcoin Cash price chart from ArminZed

Take a look at the Bitcoin Cash price graph from ArminZed: he predicts that BCH will soon retrace to its previous $136 position (it will happen by March 25th), but it won’t last long. By the beginning of April, it’s expected to get back to $150 and higher. Might be a great opportunity to enter the market and make a profitable investment.

Bitcoin Cash has made a great present for investors managing to break the channel. But what’s next? Should we target the $170 zone? Definitely, yes. Even if that doesn’t happen in the nearest weeks, a BCH retracement might become a great opportunity for investors.
